​We asked 20 questions... read on for the answers!

 

Shannon Bourke - PHR Team Member

 

 

1. What is your favourite part about working with PHR? "Getting to be involved with a group of girls who are just as passionate about the brand as I am."

 

2. What advice would you give a rider who wants to join our team? "Be proactive, keep your social media frequent but don’t repeat same style posts and most of all have fun!"

 

3. What is your absolute favourite PHR outfit? "My first custom outfit (my white, red and grey lace) matched with white breeches! So stunning." 

 

4. Where do you hope to be with your riding 10 years from now? "I hope to be showjumping and enjoying myself. Hopefully my kids will be joining me on the comp circuit."

 

5. How do you manage your nerves before competing? "When I was younger absolutely nothing worked but now that I’m older I just tell myself to go have fun and take at least one thing to work on for next time. It’s never the end of the world if things don’t go to plan." 

 

6. How would you describe your approach to training your horse/s? "I am fairly relaxed and give the horse as much time as they need. If the horse needs to stay at 80cm for a year who cares, their confidence is more important than ‘looking good’. Don’t like rushing things and I recognise that every horse is different and learns at different rates- just like us."

 

7. What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? "Rabbit carpaccio."  Shannon Bourke - PHR Team Member

 

8. What gets you out of bed in the morning?

9. What is the most important thing you have learned in the last five years? "To try and not dwell on the negative. Something positive will always come. Sometimes it just takes a while."

11. The 3 words that best describe you are: "1: remorseful (when done wrong) 2: amiable 3: considerate" 

 

12. What is on your bucket list? "My bucket list is literally to live a happy and prosperous life and travel the beautiful country we live in. Overseas doesn’t really appeal to me except for Canada." 

 

13. What is your guilty pleasure? "Maccas chips with sweet and sour sauce." Shannon Bourke - PHR Team Member

 

14. Where is the best place you’ve travelled to and why? "Adelaide, such different scenery and LOVED the 3DE atmosphere. Was interesting comparing Adelaide Hills vineyards to the Granite Belt."

 

15. Any favourite line from a movie? "Hunger Games Catching Fire: Our lives aren’t just measured in years, they’re measured in the lives of the people we touch around us."

 

16. If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do? "Pay off all debt, so I could then buy a property."

Q&A #1 ~ Part 2

11/4/2020

Like us on Facebook   Follow us on Instagram

In Part 2 of our first Q&A session, PHR founder Sarah answers questions from @chloe_oneill_equestrian, @jasperjumper_ and @olivia_jean_equestrian

Head over and follow these ladies if you haven't already!

Now, let's get stuck into it!

Q&A Session 1 Part 2

1. @chloe_oneill_equestrian asked: "What inspired you to make your brand?"   and  

@jasperjumper_ asked: "What motivated you to start the brand?"

These great questions are very similar, so I'll answer them both at once. Thanks Chloe and Sarah for asking!

There were a few things really, but I'll just touch on the main ones here...

I really wanted to offer customers unique and individual apparel that stands out in the crowd. I wanted to provide riders the opportunity to express their personality through their riding attire. This is why all of our gear is designed by us, all the fabrics we use are selected by us. We DO NOT buy bulk quantities straight out of catalogues. This is how we stay unique and true to brand. We are also a bit rebellious, in that we don't follow trends!

The other main motivation was the frustration and disappointment at the lack of flattering equestrian wear for petite sizes, and the inability to find adult styles that FIT. Many smaller framed riders turn to children's sizes in their frustration, but children's riding apparel lacks the more mature shape and styling of ladies gear. As a smaller framed rider I have felt this frustration personally, so I was very keen to improve the availability of riding apparel in this end of the size range.

It wasn't just about the petite sizes though. I also felt a drive to provide customers of all shapes and sizes with options to achieve a more personalised fit to their apparel. This is why we offer a 'made to measure' service for our shirts, and our dressmakers make all sizes requested by our customers.

Unique PHR Rider Apparel

2. @olivia_jean_equestrian asked: "Is it actually made for shorter people?"

Hi Olivia, thanks for your question.

Some of our breeches have a slightly shorter length, depending on the style. As for our shirts, as I mentioned we offer made to measure services so we are able to customise shirts to the length required by the customer.

If you or anyone else out there would like to know more about this please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We'll be happy to help you :)

Contact us

3. @jasperjumper_ asked: "Where do you hope to see PHR in 5 yrs?"

This is actually a really hard one to answer!

Due to the services we provide and the fact that we use local dressmakers, which is something we will continue to do, we need to grow carefully, within our limits.

But here are a few things I'd like to see happen within the next 5 years...

An expansion in the type of apparel we provide to include items other than just breeches and shirts,

Improve and expand our reach and relationships with our awesome customers,

I'm also very excited to see how our Team Rider Program develops, as it has become quite a large part of what we do and I love supporting and collaborating with great Aussie riders from all levels and backgrounds.

Thanks very much to everyone for the awesome questions! We'll be back with another Q&A session soon!

Welcome to our first Q&A session! In Part 1 of our first session, PHR founder Sarah answers questions from @raythebayy, @amy_.showjumper and @chloe_oneill_equestrian

Head over and follow these ladies if you haven't already!

Ok, here we go!

Q&A Session 1 Part

1. @raythebayy asked: "Are you guys still doing orders with all this Coronavirus going on?"

This is a great question, thanks for asking!

We absolutely are! If you order something that's already in stock the process is completely normal. We are still posting next business day as much as we can - which is standard practice for us anyway.

At the moment the only real change is with those orders that include items that need to be made up - so stuff that isn't in stock at the time. Those orders are unfortunately taking us a little longer than usual to fill, mostly because we've had to chage the way we interact with and get materials to our dressmakers. These new processes just take a bit longer.

But we are very grateful for any orders coming through at the moment, and are just thanking everyone for their patience as we adjust to all of these new processes.

Unique PHR Rider Apparel

2. @amy_.showjumper asked: "Are you planning on bringing out some beige breeches?"

A big yes fom us Amy!

We know a lot of you guys have been waiting for us to do the beige. I can say very happily that they are in process and will be the next lot of breeches that we release, so stay tunes for those!

 

3. @chloe_oneill_equestrian asked: "When are we getting new jodphurs?"

Well Chloe, unfortunately I can't give you guys a definite release date, and that's due to the uncertainty of the current situation. But as I said, beige is in process, we know that for sure and we're super keen for those! We will release them for you asap!

Breeches by Petite Horse & Rider

 

That's all we have time for today. Thanks so much to everyone who asked a question through our story! We loved them all, they were really great. We'll get to answering the rest of your questions very soon.

Keep an eye out for our next Q&A session!
